“I was [at] your presentation today. I just want to let you know what a wonderful job you did, and what wonderful resources you brought to me as a 1st year teacher. I really enjoyed your presentation today and you made me want to be the best teacher that I can be. When you were talking about how we are on the front lines for the fight for the future I was inspired. You not only made me think but you made me want to do more for every child that passes through my class. I guess what I am trying to say is thank you. You got me pumped up and excited for the year to come.”

“The presentation by Jeff Goldstein was absolutely fabulous.
He was able to take information that many children find
daunting and difficult and intimidating, and speak about it
in terms that they could completely understand and enjoy.
That he was able to hold a large group of middle schoolers
spellbound for his entire speech was indicative of his
dynamism as a speaker.”
